1. The crazy boy from Brazil
Now, if you were set on making 3.5 Million Dollars playing roulette, the ‘safest’ approach may be to have a series of big bets on Red/Black, Odd/Even or 1-18/19-37 and slowly get to that figure across multiple spins.
But this loud-shirted, red wine-drinking Brazilian marches to the beat of a different drum. He sticks 100k on one number and hopes for the best. Some people have all the luck…
2. Ash wins the cash
This one’s a YouTube classic. If you’re going to sell everything you own, bunch it up with your life savings and head to a Casino to put 136,000 US Dollars on the spin of one roulette wheel…you might as well make a TV show out of it.
That’s exactly what Englishman Ashley Revell did. His poor wife looks on as he picks red, knowing that one spin can bankrupt them in an instant. I think we’re all pretty glad it came up red.
3. The boys who trumped Trump
At first glance, there’s nothing particularly remarkable about four middle-aged guys driving to Atlantic City, each contributing 2,500 US dollars to a pot and putting it all on red.
A 10,000 dollar win in an Atlantic City Casino is a daily occurrence. But get to 1.44 minutes in the video and you’ll see who the Casino belongs to. Yes, one Donald J. Trump. Purely for the fact they took 10k of Trump’s own money, this clip deserves to be here.

4. Doing the splits at the Blackjack table
In truth this one shouldn’t really be on a list of biggest casino wins. Instead it should be Number 1 for gutsiest/most stupid play ever seen on a Blackjack table, depending on your perspective.
The Blackjack purist would shudder at the site of this hand, pinpointing every low-percentage move this guy makes. But hey, all’s well that ends well.
5. Slots guy loses the plot live on the web
Part of the fun of any type of gambling is that feeling of joy when you know you’re on a good run. And that’s certainly the case when you’ve activated a bonus feature on a slot, everything has fallen into place and the big wins just keep on coming.
For most of us that happens without any sort of crowd present to witness us going a little over-the-top in our celebrations. But if you’re this ‘Scandi’, who plays slots in front of a live web audience following his every spin with baited breath, a hot run on Jack and the Beanstalk free spins is enjoyed as much by his fans as it is by himself. And boy did he enjoy it…
6. He came, he sat, he conquered
The usual way of playing Blackjack in a Casino is to sit down, make yourself comfortable, grab a drink, play a small share of your chips on your first hand and see what the mood at the table is. Is the table ‘hot’? Or is the Dealer pulling out all the stops?
Alternatively, you can play your full bank on one hand, win and get the hell out of Dodge.
Which is what he did.
7. Racing commentator turns excited gambler
In Europe, sports commentators are a somewhat boring lot. They put any bias to the one side and just talk you through the action in a fair and impartial way.
But not in the US.
This particular horseracing commentator was pretty sweet on huge outsider Jacamo in the Kentucky Derby, methodically listing his reasons for liking his chances. There was less method involved as Jacamo romps home and he goes beserk in the studio.
8. US Marine leaves Bellagio casino all at sea
When you fail to impress your friends at something, your actions are normally met with the words ‘don’t give up the day job’.
But giving up his day job may have been precisely what this US Marine was about to do next after winning 2.8 million US Dollars playing the aptly-named slot ‘The Money Vault.’
Good on him and bonus points for his very understated ‘English-style’ celebrations. Which is more than you can say for the foul-mouthed and somewhat annoying pals of his.
9. Blood pressure levels through the roof in Vegas
Talk about opposites attract. Husband goes ballistic at a Jackpot win in a Vegas Casino, punching the air, waving his arms and shouting ‘Go baby, go’ no fewer than 28 times (approximately).
His wife meanwhile remains in her chair, calm, thoughtful and quiet, like she was watching Oprah.
It’s probably a good thing the slot stopped paying out when it did because we’re not sure this guy’s heart could have taken much more.
